ABSTRACT

The aim of this paper is to examine the formation and context of change of the lyrics on Gwonjuga. Gwonjuga is one of the Twelve Gasa. Now there are two kinds of lyrics of Gwonjuga. One is called old song, the other is current song. There are many differences between two songs. Distinct feature of old song is the first line 'hold on hold on' but there is not in current song. Current song starts with 'brew alcohol from elixir plant'. This change of the lyrics woud be affected by Gwonjuga in Daedongpunga. That song is maybe the text on transition period from old song to current song. Current song is divided into ten parts, Gwonjuga in Daedongpunga is divided into five parts. This division of lyrics was not seen before. Current song has new lyrics, for example Sijo of Park In-lo. We can find blessing meaning from current song, because current song was sung in a birthday feast for an old man. On the other hand we can find sad feeling in transience of life from old song. According to singing place lyrics of Gwonjuga had been changed.
